Integrating Bluetooth technologies into IP desk phones transforms the phone into a Swiss Army knife-like device that allows a lot of useful functions, well beyond connecting a wireless headset. Here we look at innovative IP phones from Panasonic, Grandstream, Yealink, Snom, Sangoma, Allworx and Gigaset that have integrated Bluetooth and other productivity-enhancing features.
Back in May we reviewed Yealink’s innovative T5 smart media phones. Now, Yealink has introduced the Version 40 firmware upgrade for these phones, adding to an already impressive arsenal of features and functionalities.
Companies are continually striving to discover new workplace philosophies that will maximize the productivity of their employees. Google, Apple, and Facebook are just some examples of organizations that are introducing innovative workspace and workplace designs. Most of these are moving away from the traditional “employee tied to a desk” standard by freeing up their staff and providing for mobility within the workspace.
Yealink’s W60B DECT IP Phone Base Station is an ideal ally to aid any small- to medium-sized business in achieving such employee mobility. Since it is easy to deploy, flexible in its functionality, and rich in features, it provides for all the requirements of any internally mobile workforce.
IP telephony and its related technologies have matured over the past decade. As competition grows among IP telephony vendors, product designers are packing more options, functionality, and bells and whistles into their products. This sometimes results in making IP telephones and their accessories more complicated to operate.
Yealink seems to have cut through the hype of multi-functional devices by designing and offering a simple, intuitive and easy-to-use device that performs specific and specialized functions, and performs them flawlessly. This is definitely the case with Yealink’s new CP920 touch-sensitive HD IP Conference Phone.
Yealink has smartened up its IP conference phone with the CP960. This ergonomic, intuitive and exceptionally sleek conference phone adds the Android operating system and other enhancements to the Yealink CP860.
IP telephony products have been around for over a decade. There are many options to choose from and some may be wondering, what’s next? What new features of an IP telephony endpoint can make it stand out above the rest? Yealink may have answered this question with its new T5 smart media phones.
The upgraded phone line takes the stack of advanced features even higher.

With the T4 series of IP phones, Yealink offers a well-rounded array of sophisticated calling features, state-of-the-art voice quality, easy installation, robust customization options and extensive expandability. Early in December 2016, Yealink released the upgraded T4S models based on the former T4 series in the North America region. The T4S models build on the user experience even more with a number of upgrades.
Part 2 of 2 in a series on video conferencing
Last week, we looked at room-installed video conferencing systems. In this article, we look at video phones – and we’re not referring to a Beyoncé song, but rather SIP (session initiation protocol) endpoints that give users video-conferencing capability from their desktop. Here we offer a comparison between the Grandstream GXV3240 and GXV3275, and the Yealink T49G.
Part 1 of 2: Room Systems
If it’s been a while since you’ve looked into videoconferencing equipment, now might be a good time to take a fresh look. Over the past five years, the pricing has come down to an easily accessible level, and the systems are now more interoperable with other hardware and apps than ever before.
